Trip Advisor Reviews

Fifteen of us--half of our family slept across the road at the Cabin on the Creek for a 4 day weekend! Gorgeous home boasting a large "great room" w/top of the line appliances, tv/computer access. In fact, everything about the cabin is topnotch! Walkable to the Village, hiking trails, Creek. Tlc and superb service by Martha is wonderful! This cabin is definitely a repeat!!!



We just returned from a weekend stay at the Mt. View cabin. We were two couples and a golden retriever. Searching the internet, I found the property and phoned the manager, Martha, for more info. I told her of our requirements and she assurred me that the Mt. View cabin would be perfect. It was! The cabin, although a bit dated, was very comfortable and had everything we could need. The fenced yard of over a half acre was fantastic for the dog. Secluded, close to great hiking and walking distance to town, the location was great. Martha's service was 1st rate and we look forward being back in the summer.



"Christmas in Heaven!"
We just got back from a 3 night stay at the Mountain View cabin in Idyllwild, and we have nothing but good things to report. We brought our dog, a black lab, who was in heaven running around the 1 acre lot, that was totally fenced it. It had just snowed the day before, so we were able to enjoy a white Christmas. The cabin itself was perfectly suited for us. It wasn't fancy per se - but had all the amenties we needed. A cozy fireplace, big open floorplan, fenced in back yard, big bedroom. Martha at Fern Valley Vacation Cabins was extremely friendly and accommodating. She moved one of the twin beds into the master bedroom which was perfect, so our 4 yr old son could sleep near us. When we arrived, the house was very clean, and already warm and cozy w/ the heat on.
We loved the cabin, and definately plan to book a trip back there next year. 5 stars for Mountian View and Fern Valley Vacation Cabins!


"Unforgettable vacation at the Cabin"
Exceeded expectations, amazingly clean and comfortable with full amenities... Loved it, would definitely go back again.




"Best of all worlds"
This cabin is walking distance to town, yet still feels private and tucked in the woods. Very comfortable--more of a modern house in the woods than a rustic cabin. Ideal for two couples. Very warm and intimate. The house was well stocked with amenities. It snowed quite a bit the weekend we stayed. The street was easy to get out of though and the owner was kind enough to shovel our driveway both mornings. I would like to return to this cabin again some day.



Excellent facility and prompt assistance from manager when a tree was downed by snow taking out electricity. A very nice rental home.



"Amazing and Gorgeous"
This cabin was very welcoming and gorgeous. Walking onto the back porch, you are surrounded by nature and the sound of the creek right below you. I would highly recommend this amazing and beautiful place.


"Williams"
Over all the service was great and the cabin was fine. We were a little further away from town than we would like. The ad said within walking distance. What it did not say is you had to cross the 243 to get to town.


"Nice House in the Woods"
This is more of a house than a cabin. It's in a very quiet location down a dirt road which dead ends so there is no thru traffic. It is new and has excellent features.
This place is really nice and has everything. You only have to bring food and clothes...everything else is there.
My wife loved the well equipped kitchen (I think I'll be upgrading her kitchen soon as a result of this trip). She also liked the master bath with the large walk-in shower.
The wood stove works great to heat the big open area which includes the living room, dining room and kitchen. There is also central heating/AC as a backup that worked great.
The furnishings are quite nice and the audio/video equipment was a pleasant surprise. It's nice to have access the internet via the wireless router.
The only downside was that the mobile phone signal is weak inside the house but okay on the back deck or out front. But then again who wants to be connected to the outside world when you are up here?
PS: Martha of Idyllwild Vacation Cabin Rentals is a real treat to work with.


"I didn't go wrong!"
I'm glad I choose to stay at the bungalow, it was clean,comfortable, and amazing view and Martha Sanchez was very friendly and on top of things. I would defenetly come back and let anyone I know if they need to relax and be treated right call Martha Sanchez and stay at Idyllwild vacation cabins!!!


"The perfect weekend"
There were 8 of us, 3 adults, 5 children, ages 8-15. We had a wonderful time. Martha was really great, accommodating us on short notice (2 days). All of the amenities were available in the cabin, i.e., paper towels, toliet paper, dish soap, coffee filters, towels and linens. there was evem wood for the fire in the potbelly stove! We arrived on Thursday afternoon and by evening time it was snowing. It snowed the just about the whole time we were there. The kids had a blast, sledding down the hill in the backyard & throwing snowballs. Night time brought fun in the game room, playing pool and darts, or watching a movie with a fire in the potbelly stove. We bar-b-qued out on the deck one night during a snow storm, it was great. We also took advantage of seeing the sights around Idyllwild. We visited the Nature Center and took hikes around the glorious wilderness. We visited the Fire and Earth pottery store and painted beautiful pottery that was fired that night and we picked it up the next day. We had a wonderful birthday dinner for my daughter at the Gastronome restaurant. We also visited many other stores in town. I would highly recommend staying with Fern Valley, they made it so comfortable. I definitely will come again!


"Clean Cozy and Peaceful, A relaxing place to escape"
The Cavalier Cabin was a wonderful cabin to stay in. Booking reservations online were easy.The rental place where you pick up the key is 24 hours so you arent pressed for time, The cabin is secluded and very quiet. It is very clean and I am a clean freak. It feels so comfortable. We had snow and sitting on the couch in front of the fireplace watching the snow fall was heaven on earth. There is a great deck in the back with a BBQ grill. I cant wait to go back in the summer to sit and relax there. It is surrounded with trees and there are lots of squirels. It is very spacious as there are vaulted ceilings. The kitchen is clean and there is a coffee pot but remember to bring your own coffee as it isnt provided! It is the perfect place to escape and unwind.Absolutely beautiful. Also, since we got almost a foot of snow Martha the cabin keeper was so kind to call us to make sure we could get out. Even if we were stuck in the snow she would have sent somebody out to help us get out. That was really nice.Cant wait to come back.

Great Stay
I was impressed and pleased with the web, phone and office access in central Idyllwild. The Cabin was modern in construction with beautiful floors, ceilings and kitchen. We enjoyed the great room while cooking, playing games and listening to an Ipod over the surround sound. We had everything we needed in the cabin, while enjoying the seclusion of a forest with a creek off the large back deck. Glad I booked it, had a blast with the In-laws and "Kids", everyone said, "this place is awsome".


This rental had everything we needed

This house is roomy and in a great location, walkable to the fabulous aroma Cafe and the rest of town; great view, a short drive to dramatic hiking and pet friendly. Everything worked: the heat, the jacuzzi, the fireplace, the TV. When the DVD player didn't work, the rental company replaced it in time for the next evening's movie. Very comfortable sleeping arrangements and a fabulous deck.


A relaxing family week-end away in Idyllwild

This home was beautiful and very comfortable. Can't wait to go back :o)


Boulder View is 5 Star Magic

Everthing about Boulder View is 5 Star Magic. Beautiful Views of Strawberry Creek, huge stunning boulders, and wonderful pine trees, make your time magic.
The cabin with it's great room makes your stay a great memory. Thanks for a great time.


Wonderful stay at one of the best cabins I've been ever into

Perfect for 2 couples
The cabin is pretty much brand new. The surroundings are perfect in that it's secluded enough and yet with neighboring cabins for a feel of small rural community. I stayed here with two of my friend's family, and all of them were saying they would come back in a near future with their parents or other family members. If you stay here, I beg you to please take a good care of it because I know I would be coming back here definitely in the future, and I hope I find it in its current tip-top shape for many years to come.

I stayed in the master bedroom. The bed was absolutely comfortable. The only problem I had was there was not much closet or shelf space to hang or put anything on in the master suite. The walk-in closet in the bathroom is locked up for owner's use, and there is not much furniture (the reason I gave less than 5 stars for "comfort") It was a minor discomfort.

If you visit here, do enjoy the full surround stereo system that is built in the ceiling. All you have to do is to connect your iphone or computer to the earphone jack or play DVD. We had a wonderful time hearing some nice music.

One episode. We had total of 3 babies, and all of them almost got a cold. This is what happened. After we put them to sleep in the bedrooms,we started fire in the fireplace (which you would need some instruction to make it work) and we talked by the fireside in the living room until about 2am. One of the babies started crying, and we realized that the rooms were very cold. It was because the living room got warm through the fire and the heater didn't operate because the temperature in the living room was above 73 degree we had set in the evening. (Our babies are fine)

Again, if you stay in this cabin, take a good care of it. I am coming back.

This home was recently remodeled and was spotless throughout. We came with another couple with kids and dogs and it was perfect with 2 master bedrooms. There was an additional room where the kids slept off living area. The laundry room was enclosed and we could of kept our dogs there if we wanted. There was plenty of room, kitchen utensils, and was located close to town. Our children wanted us to purchase this home and our friends thanked me for finding such a perfect home to meet our needs during our brief getaway. It's always great when the place you visit looks even better than the pictures!

Absolutely the Best Extended Family Getaway

In fact, everything about the cabin is topnotch! Walkable to the Village, hiking trails, Creek. Tlc and superb service by Martha is wonderful! This cabin is definitely a repeat!!!


Everything We Wanted and More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the alkire Cabin. The service given to us by Martha was wonderful. My husband has a hip problem so she even helped load some firewood in his truck! The home was emaculate and had so many adorable decorations! Location was close to town, yet when out on the back porch, you feel a million miles away, with all the pine trees and huge oak trees. The little stream at the bottom of the property could be heard from the back porch, which was very tranquil. I would say, the best thing about our stay, was the freedom our two dogs had to wander the huge property, and with the chain link fence around it, we didn't have to worry about them escaping. The only thing that I wasn't aware of, was that the firepit (coalpit), was not in working order, and that although it lists having a laundry, we didn't have access to it. We also were not given a key to access the stream from the back yard. It really wasn't a problem, but I think we will ask about those things next time we come up...and...we will come up again! Loved it!!


Alkire house in Idyllwild

We had a lovely stay in Idyllwild. The alkire home was fabulous. So perfect for our romantic retreat.
The home is in such a great location. Very private but only a few blocks from town. We totally had the best of both worlds.

This is my first experience in renting a home when traveling. I was happy I did. It is like being "at home" but on vacation:)

The manager, Martha is available by phone is you encounter issues. She is courteous and helpful.

I highly recommend this house.


Smashing Cottage

A great cottage in the mountains for the ideal retreat, many thanks!


Wonderful and especially magical at Xmas with the trees and all

Home was so inviting, comfortable and warm. We really, really appreciated all the trees and decorations for our
Xmas season. Location was wonderful, close to town and
our favorite restuarants,especially Cafe Roma! Service
was excellent... Wonderful updated kitchen, would just
recomend afew more dish cloths and extra light bulbs to
replace three that were burnt out.


Extraodinary and above all expectations

My husband and I stayed at the alkire. The accommodations were amazing. There were far more things there than described and both my husband and I felt our vacation could not have been better. We had the opportunity to meet the owners, Chuck and Ellen, and that only made things better because they were such friendly and gracious hosts. Shower and bath were roomy. The bed and bedding were so comfortable. I am picky when it comes to mattresses and bedding, so for me, this made me feel like I was at home. The back yard was perfect for our two dogs. We brought our bull mastiff, Samson and our rescue pit, Roxanne. They actually behaved better than they do at home, so I think they were pleased too. The walk to town is in within a minute and makes it easy and convenient to enjoy Idyllwild. The view in the backyard was amazing, private, and peaceful. I told Chuck and Ellen the pictures do not do this place justice. Martha, our coordinator, could not have been more helpful. Thank you for making out experience so wonderful.


Best Vacation Ever

Our arrival at this wonderful home brought us the same feeling as seeing our us Open Seats did. We thought we had hit the Jackpot. Booking on line can always be sketchy, but from first glance the home was wonderful. Wonderful to cook, wonderful to sleep and wonderful for Scrabble. Of course, we packed too much stuff as this cabin already had everything that we needed. This cabin will always be special because it was the first time outdoor for our newly amputated family pet (bone cancer). It was his first chance to vacation. He navigated the yard and decks with such ease and enjoyed the outdoors as much as we expected. Wonderful home, wonderful Martha. We will be back.

 


Relaxing and rejuvenated

Martha was a great start to a relaxing 3-day weekend. The website and reservation process made it so easy to start. The home was outstanding! It was beautifully decorated, homey, and relaxing. It has absolutely everything a person could want! The fact that we could bring our dog was a bonus! Neither of us wanted to leave and return to our real lives! We enjoyed it so much, we immediately looked into a December stay, but we'll have to wait till next year!
When we couldn't figure out how to get the DVD player to work, Martha even came over and got it going for us! Great service!
We will definitely be reserving with Martha again, and hopefully at alkire on the Creek!


Lovely deck looking out on a beautiful forest, on the creek.

This was a very nice cabin, within an easy walk to town, and we would definitely consider staying there again.



The Most awesome Cabin in Idyllwild

My husband and I along with our two dogs just spent the best 4 days in this lovely cabin. We have been coming to Idyllwild for 10 years now and have stayed at one cabin for years in Pine Cove. When I called Martha I told her what we were looking for. She was spot on with her recommendation.
This cabin is perfect for a couple to get away...it is secluded, has all the amenities (Hdtv, WiFi, gourmet kitchen, AC) but yet not over the top. You still feel like you are in a cabin, but not without some of things we all enjoy.
The lot is huge, right on Strawberry Creek (the dogs loved the hike along the creek) as we did too.
This is our new place to stay for a long time to come.
Also, I should note Martha is awesome! I have never had this type of customer service in any of the other cabin rentals!
Thanks Martha!


A wonderful, relaxing vacation in a beautiful home.

I loved staying for a week in Idyllwild. We had never done this before and it was great getting away from the hot desert. The home we rented was beautiful and well cared for. It had everything you could want. The service was excellent by Martha and her Mom.
We plan on coming back to Idyllwild.


Comfortable, quiet, enjoyable stay

Walk to town. The house was very nice. Dog yard. Great stay. The staff was very helpful and friendly.


Pretty good

It was a nice cabbin with lots of home comforts, however I didn't like the shower being downstairs instead of by the master bedroom, the scenery around the cabbin was awesome. I also liked the seclusion, I would recommend this cabbin to my friends.


Really enjoyed hearing the creek in the background and the porch

The Cabin was close enough to town for convenience but because it was a little bit away had a more secluded feeling. Really enjoyed having porches off both bedrooms plus the front and back of the cabin. The service from Martha was superior-- she even retrieved a item that was left behind and mailed it to me later. Much appreciated!


Unforgettable vacation at the Cabin

Exceeded expectations, amazingly clean and comfortable with full amenities... Loved it, would definitely go back again.


Idyllic

I only give 4 stars because of a couple glitches- but what else to expect from a mountain cabin?!
It was overall absolutely fantastic and adorable. I have already called my entire call list to recommend this little gem. It's as cute (though smaller- but hey- I live in la where we're all obnoxious and spoiled) as it looks in pictures. And I love the vhs player (with dvd) with labeled movies (I went for my one-year anniversary and watching "Beauty and the Beast" definitely won over any alternative- apologies to my man :)
Martha (and her mom) were so helpful and accommodating.
Thank you so much Martha!


Quaint, Relaxing Getaway

We had a great time. The cabin was clean, had all we could have wanted. Everything, including the all too crucial hot tub, was prepped and waiting for our arrival.


Great time

Very nice cabin, great for 2-3 people.
Everything was as promised and Martha had it ready for us with the spa, lights and heat on. The only thing missing was a bundle of dry wood for the fireplace.We did not have any energy after the long drive to go out that night, so we had to wait 'till the next day.
The kitchen is not big, but has pretty much everything, we had no trouble cooking the whole Thanksgiving dinner.
It is very peaceful and relaxing, with beautiful night sky.
We had wonderful time, and will definitely stay there again.


Peaceful, relaxing family getaway w/ excellent service & value.

My wife and I looked at all the other online rental companies and none of them compared to the value we found with Martha at IdyllwildVacationCabins.com. After spending a few minutes on the phone with her, I could tell she takes great pride in her cabins and I knew her service would be exceptional. Our experience was even better than we expected when we stayed in Starlight Seclusion. The cabin was clean, very well maintained, and furnished for optimum comfort. Our daughters loved the main upstairs loft and we all slept very well. By the way, I don't usually rate something 5 stars across the board, but I can honestly say that our experience deserves 5 stars all the way. Thank you, Martha. We'll be back soon!


The most peaceful and relaxing vacation in a cabin ever!

Trisha and I just wanted to thank you for the great time in our Cabin rental this past weekend (Oct. 27 to Oct. 30). It was the most peaceful, relaxing, and fun time we've had in a very long time. I give 5 stars for every aspect of the trip and stay. No matter when or what I called you for during our time there you were always right there to assist us, thank you. We will most definitely be coming back to you personally for our next vacation rental. We Loved it so much that we didn't want to leave. I wish I could get away to Idyllwild every month! I have recommended your Cabins to my friends, family, and co-workers. Thank you so much Martha!! We will hopefully see you very soon.


Wonderul

Everything was perfect! The hot tub right outside our door was delightful, the location of the cabin was terrific. The cabin was clean some of the kitchen items were dusty. The bed we slept in was uncomfortable and the shower was tiny. Our stay overall, was truly great! Our dog loved every minute of it!!


I didn't go wrong!

I'm glad I choose to stay at the bungalow, it was clean,comfortable, and amazing view and Martha Sanchez was very friendly and on top of things. I would defenetly come back and let anyone I know if they need to relax and be treated right call Martha Sanchez and stay at Idyllwild vacation cabins!!!


Wonderful weekend getaway!

We were fortunate enough to be able to stay at the Hudson Hideaway cabin when we recently visited Idyllwild. We found the cabin to be immaculate, beautifully furnished with comfortable, great quality bedding. The games room was just icing on the cake...kept the kids busy! Martha is a dream to communicate with and I'm so glad I followed her recommendations. Will definitely return in the summer!


Excellent fun in Cabin, even without the snow!

We loved it here!
Very nice, comfortable, and lots of fun with the game room!! Great for the family!


A wonderful cabin!

We have stayed at Hudson's Hideaway a few times over the last few years and love this cabin! Its tastefully decorated, close to town and the pool table is a hit with my kids. If the owners ever want to sell...


Great Cabin w all the luxuries

This place was terrific. If you like antiques, blended with modern technology this is the place for you. Close to town, great comfortable beds. Overstuffed furniture and flat screen tv's. The game room was a great bonus. All the amenities were there.


Fun and Relaxing Cabin Getaway with Cool Game Room

Our last minute decision to rent this cabin/home was the best one we've had in awhile!! Martha was very prompt in returning my call and was very pleasant to deal with. She assured me that if we needed anything, to call her any time of day. As it was, the place was perfect!!

Upon our arrival at Hudson Hideaway, we found the place to be spacious and inviting. It was very clean and comfortable. Our teenage girls loved the game room and my husband and I loved the wonderful deck behind the house. A nice quiet place to relax, play games, or just sit and enjoy the surrounding scenery.

We cooked most all of our meals at the cabin and found the kitchen to be fully stocked. The BBQ on the deck was very nice and convenient. We loved the decor of the home...very classy with antique furniture touches throughout.

We wanted to go hiking and only had to drive 8 to 10 minutes to Humber Park. Just loved the views and scenery of the San Jacinto mountains.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hudson Hideaway and would definitely recommend that you give it a try. You won't be disappointed!


Lovely relaxing location to get away from it all and relax

Excellent facility and prompt assistance from manager when a tree was downed by snow taking out electricity. a very nice rental home


Peaceful family getaway!!!

Loved it! The rooms were beautiful. The location was perfect and the view spectacular. Everything was as described or better. All nine of us had a wonderful time. It was close to town but still secluded. Perfect. We will absolutely visit again. No complaints. One warning: If you take a bath in the big beautiful tub keep in mind that the tub is way bigger than the hot water heater.


Awsome!!! cabin

me and my family had a great time we would do it again the cabin was awsome great views so comfterble everything was just perfect looking foward on planing another vacation with martha


Idle Escape offers a panoramic view of Lily Rock and the Idyllwild

Idle Escape is located in a quiet but friendly neighborhood. The large deck offers a beautiful view of the mountains and sky. The home is comfortable and the kitchen fully equipped. The location of this retreat is not far from town -- too far to walk but a quick trip in the car. The outstanding feature of this home is the large deck and stunning view. The bedrooms could all use new mattresses and ample lighting. Bring a fashlight to read at night. Overall, fond memories in the forest.


Wonderful!! Peaceful, comfortable,convenient, great view.

I have to say the best part of my stay in Idle Escape was Martha Sanchez,she is the property manager who is very attentive of your every need. She is very acomodating and has a terrific smile. You may be able to rent a great house from many different people but the service Martha provides is very hard to find and she has rentals to satisfy most peoples needs. If something was to happen and you needed a quick response to any situation Martha will be there to take care of your needs. This to me is the most important aspect of any vacation.


Great family weekend!

The cabin was very nice, clean and spacious. The view from almost every room was spectacular. Martha was very welcoming and friendly and made sure things ran smooth. We would rent this cabin again.
Awesome!


The perfect weekend

There were 8 of us, 3 adults, 5 children, ages 8-15. We had a wonderful time. Martha was really great, accommodating us on short notice (2 days). All of the amenities were available in the cabin, i.e., paper towels, toliet paper, dish soap, coffee filters, towels and linens. there was evem wood for the fire in the potbelly stove! We arrived on Thursday afternoon and by evening time it was snowing. It snowed the just about the whole time we were there. The kids had a blast, sledding down the hill in the backyard & throwing snowballs. Night time brought fun in the game room, playing pool and darts, or watching a movie with a fire in the potbelly stove. We bar-b-qued out on the deck one night during a snow storm, it was great. We also took advantage of seeing the sights around Idyllwild. We visited the Nature Center and took hikes around the glorious wilderness. We visited the Fire and Earth pottery store and painted beautiful pottery that was fired that night and we picked it up the next day. We had a wonderful birthday dinner for my daughter at the Gastronome restaurant. We also visited many other stores in town. I would highly recommend staying with Fern Valley, they made it so comfortable. I definitely will come again!


Girls get away

Five of us met in the mountains for a girls week-end and had a great time. The house was clean and welcoming and the views from the balcony amazing. Although the kitchen is stocked with dishes, etc. it is short some items. For example, there were only four wine glasses although the house is said to sleep nine, one tall water glass, no liquid measuring cups. We are a group who likes to cook and cooked all week-end so I would suggest your future guests be advised to bring some of their own specialized equipment if they are going to cook.

Martha Sanchez was great to work with and was immediately available when the first two arrived and could not figure out the television.


Best retreat so far!

We got to Idyllwild a little late but the office had prepared for that and had made special arrangements. When we finally got to our cabin we opened the door and saw a well furnished living room with a fireplace. As we explored the property we could not believe how big it was. With a total of 5 rooms 3 bathrooms and so many beds we all had the personal space we like, which is very odd when you go on a retreat. The next day after our hike we came back and had a BBQ on the very nice grill with the propane that they provided for us. This cabin was great and was exactly what we were looking for at a very decent price. Will definitely consider going again next year.


Every thing we expected!!!

We stayed at this cabin Christmas week and it was everything we wanted it to be! The cabin is beautifull and spacious and very clean. We had three families staying with us and there was plenty of space to accommodate everyone. The master bedroom was huge with a large bathroom and a fire place. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and was very sad to leave. The staff was very helpfull, even went out of our way to dump all the trash for us (which was quite a bit since we were there for a week and it was Christmas!) The trash is only taken on certain days and since we checked out on an off day- they graciously loaded our many bags of trash into their personal vehicle and disposed of it for us. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation!!! I would definatly rent this cabin again!!!


Magical

We had a wonderful time my son proposed to his girfriend there everything was perfect there was 11 of us and we had plenty of room all I can say is thateverything was what we expected and more


Everything about the house was perfect for our family holiday get away.

The house was perfect for our family's getaway for the holidays. We enjoyed the deck and surroundings during the day and the cozy environment in the house at night. The upstairs rooms were a comfortable place for the kids to play and the master suite worked well for the family of four kids and two adults. It was nice to have the separate bedrooms downstairs for the grandparents. The kitchen was well equipped and we prepared all our meals and ate together at the large dining table. Hope to come back for a summer visit. Martha made everything easy.
Thanks.


Good to have everyone together.

Three couples, plus one mother-in-law and one couple's daughter, we were all able to be together and enjoy ourselves.
Needed: a closet to hang clothes in the master bedroom upstairs; a hair dryer, a map to send people who are coming, and better instructions for use of the internet. Otherwise, great!!


Mountain Cabin Experience

This is the 3rd Christmas we've spent at this cabin and look forward to spending more here. The cabin is small and cozy - perfect for 2 people but will sleep 3. It's located at the bottom of a small cul-de-sac so it can be difficult to access in the snow or ice. However, we love the privacy and seclusion this cabin provides in the winter months. Dogs are welcome here and there's a nice fenced-in back yard with easy access from the back deck. It's a great place to unplug from everything(no wireless access) and just sit by the fire, play games or watch movies. This is the first year the cabin has been under management by Martha Sanchez and there is definitely a noticeable improvement. She was easily contacted by phone to answer questions and showed interest and concern that all our needs were met. I highly recommend this cabin to a single person or couple for a quiet get-away.


Our third stay at Cavalier and we'll definatly come back

Our one week end per year in Idyllwild will continue to be spent at the Cavalier cabin. This place is much larger than the photos suggest. Perfect for one couple. A great getaway. The dirt drive leading to the cabin adds to the sense of seclusion. Pay attention to the 4-wheele drive warning if it snows, but it's best to have that anyway (or all-wheele drive) in the general area during the winter. The forced air heat warms this baby up in a minute and a half. Bring Fido and hike the Ernie Maxwell trail. Huge romantic fireplace-bring lotsa wood. Kitchen and dining area make it comfortable to prepare meals and stay in. We'll be back...Patrick B. Chula Vista, Ca.


Relaxing and rejuvenating

We really enjoyed staying at Cavalier Cabin. We loved the intimacy of the interior and especially having real wood fires in the fireplace each evening. We had everything we needed there to enjoy our stay. The back patio was a wonderful place to sit and read, watch and listen to nature and just relax.


Clean Cozy and Peaceful, A relaxing place to escape

The Cavalier Cabin was a wonderful cabin to stay in. Booking reservations online were easy.The rental place where you pick up the key is 24 hours so you arent pressed for time, The cabin is secluded and very quiet. It is very clean and I am a clean freak. It feels so comfortable. We had snow and sitting on the couch in front of the fireplace watching the snow fall was heaven on earth. There is a great deck in the back with a BBQ grill. I cant wait to go back in the summer to sit and relax there. It is surrounded with trees and there are lots of squirels. It is very spacious as there are vaulted ceilings. The kitchen is clean and there is a coffee pot but remember to bring your own coffee as it isnt provided! It is the perfect place to escape and unwind.Absolutely beautiful. Also, since we got almost a foot of snow Martha the cabin keeper was so kind to call us to make sure we could get out. Even if we were stuck in the snow she would have sent somebody out to help us get out. That was really nice.Cant wait to come back.


We'll definitely remember this cabin for future stays!

We loved this cabin! We got there fairly late in the evening and it was so nice to come to an already warm, well-lit cabin. We will be keeping this cabin in mind for future stays. It was so nice. It was clean, bright, and had nearly everything you need- with the exception of food, some seasonings, coffee filters, and shampoo. But even with that it had much more than we had expected.

Martha was wonderful to work with. She is quick to answer calls and return calls and is very helpful. I had a lot of questions and she was very patient and kind.

My only complaint was that the spa was too hot. At 110 degrees we had red lines on our bodies from where the water ran up to. We had to get out within 5 minutes and stop forcing ourselves to enjoy it, as it was a main reason for choosing this cabin. But everything else about the cabin made up for it! It was a very nice getaway!


We had a great time!

We thoroughly enjoyed our get away weekend at Bella Luna. The cabin is charming and has a lovely view. I do wish that there were queen or 2 single beds in each room instead of doubles - they are just not big enough. The faucet in the downstairs bathroom is coming off and the dryer was filled with parts, it looks like they are fixing it. Other than that we loved it!


Holidays 2011

We had a wonderful time!
Bella Luna is truly amazing!
Martha was helpful and always available when we had a question or two.
Bella Luna is in a peaceful and friendly neighborhood. Just minutes to town.
We had wonderful views of the mountains from every room!
We were able to have family time and watch the small birds and animals in the mornings with our coffee.
Our two little dogs, Angel and Lucky had a great time too.
There was just enough snow for our son Jake to have some fun in the snow!
We hope to visit Idyllwild again and will definitely rent from Martha again!

Relaxing and Beautiful

This beautiful cabin is spacious, clean, beautiful and amply stocked with games, books and movies so that you don't have to leave to look for entertainment. The spa was a bonus. My husband and I were so comfortable that we only left for one lunch meal. The rest of the time we played games, cooked and relaxed in the hot tub. We had a wonderful time.


Beautiful cabin, ok location

We loved the cabin, it was very comfortable and clean. The location was just ok for us as our kids wanted more of an outdoor area with trees and forest to play in. This cabin is private but surrounded on all sides by other cabins so exploring out of the property line, you end up in someone's yard close by. This property is built on a large boulder of rock so not as many trees and the ground is not level around the property if you need extra help with elderly guests or small children. The furnishings were very nice but none of the windows have any type of blind or shade so at night, you are in full view and plan on getting up early because the sun will be beaming in your face first thing in the early morning. The only thing that would have made it perfect would have been more trees/land and a window shade in the bedrooms. Everything we needed was provided. Last day was a little annoying because although we weren't staying the extra night, we were given the buy 2 nights get one free so I was told we could leave at our leisure on the last day but we received a phone call around 2pm wanting us to leave so they could show the cabin to someone else renting for the holidays. Although we were planning on leaving soon anyway, that bothered me and its a good thing we didn't decide to stay that extra night. Our packing up the car just seemed rushed when the property managements car was waiting at the bottom of the driveway with clients in it. Was still a very nice getaway and I would use this company again.


The Bears Den is a very nice place

The Bears Den is a very nice place to stay and I would recommend it to others. My only issue was the fact that we had to dispose of our own trash.


Our family looks forward to staying at the Bear's Den all year.

We have been coming to the Bear's Den for the past 8 years and have loved every second of it. Each year is a little different in the number of our children who can join us, but what has stayed constant is the peace we experience being there and the great service we receive before, during and after our trip.


Relaxing the moment we arrived!

The Bear's Den is an all inclusive vacation location. We brought all our own food so as soon as we arrived, we had all the luxuries of home yet the peace and serenity of the mountains and the luxury of a spacious home with all the amenities you could ask for! Lots of space for everyone to spread out and enjoy their space. The kids loved the freedom to roam & explore around the property. Deer were waiting in the back for us when we arrived. Guaranteed to help you make some great family memories!


Excellent cabin

This is the first time we stay in a cabin and the experience was terrific. The K&J; cabin was awesome!! We took our kids that range from 6 to 11 and they had a great time since the cabin amenities offers a play room with board games, 3-in-one fun table (air hockey, pin pong and pool table) not to mention the out beauty of Idyllwild. The whole cabin was very well stocked and clean, would recommend to anyone, speically if you have a family with kids. The only dissapointment was that there was no snow due to the lack of rain this season.


Nice

Service was fine. Home was nice, but would have been nice to be able to use the fireplace as the listing led us to believe we could. When we got there, it said not to use it, but to use the franklin stove. One of the things i like best in the mountains is the fireplace. Also, though the yard was wonderful for the dogs, they couldn't walk down the curly staircase. That would have been nice to mention in the description of the home. Finally, we couldn't find the trash place as the address wasn't anywhere in the literature so we ended up taking all our garbage back to long beach.


Phenomenal, quite, peaceful

Really loved staying at this cabin. It has all the amenities one needs to enjoy your vacation and your family. The game room had my whole family, from youngest brother to grandmother playing pool, air hockey, ping-pong. We took walks to downtown and also drove just becuase it was dark. People are friendly in that little town, there's everything you need to entertain yourself. My whole family liked it a lot.
I liked the location and being surrounded by nature.
I didn't like the drive, but eh, it's the price I had to pay.


A peaceful, comfortable cabin with beautiful mountain views...

I stayed at this cabin with one other friend. It was my first experience. I liked it here. It was peaceful getaway I needed. This cabin is comfortable and had all the necessary amenities. It is very close to town by car. And if you're up for a hike and an exercise, then you can hike/walk down to the town center.

There were great restaurants in town. Two I tried and loved were La Casita Mexican Restaurant and Cafe aroma. There are also local shops worth stopping in like angels in the Cottage, Himalayan Treasures and the Soap Shop. Also, checkout the local coffee shop.

The only thing is that it's an older cabin. So don't expect contemporary or updated interior. I actually took my own bedding, even though it was available. It does have everything you'll need.

I would return to this haven of a town and this cabin.


We felt relaxed and had the comforts of home.

We loved the yard (especially our four-legged kiddo), fully fenced and beautiful view. Inside, our only complaint was wishing for a dishwasher! Everything worked, and there were ample cooking supplies for a fun-filled weekend. We liked being close to town, but having a sense of privacy.


We loved the huge fenced yard!

We were completely happy with the Mountain View cabin, and so were our dogs. The yard was huge (and secure), and the cabin was well-appointed and homey. Everything worked just fine. We had a really nice time.


Our New Years stay at Mountain View

The house is lovely and the yard amazing. The heatlamps in the bathroom were an added plus, the kitchen a good size. But, you had to sit on a couch pillow or you would sink way down. The bed upstains was very nice but the twin bed in front of the door downstairs was a nightmare.
We will stay in Idyllwild again, martha was wonderful, but will select a different cabin.


Relaxing weekend in mountains

We had a super time. the cabin was great and the friendliness and service by Martha was excellent. We will definately be back.


Great Place to Relax and for Doggies

We had a great time at Mountain View. The fenced in propery was very nice and I was happy our dogs had a large, enclosed, safe area to run around in. I also liked that we could park our car on the property.

The house was cozy and clean and offered great views. My only critique is that I wished it was decorated more modernly, and little more tastefully.

The directions/instructions written on the walls took away from the homey environment and made it more institutional.


Relaxing

This is a wonderful cabin! It was perfect for 5 people. The furnishings are a bit old, but very cozy. The view is wonderful and the fire place added to the relaxing weekend. The street was quiet and we felt as if we were the only ones on the mountain!


A perfect pet friendly location

We just returned from a weekend stay at the Mt. View cabin. We were two couples and a golden retriever. Searching the internet, I found the property and phoned the manager, Martha, for more info. I told her of our requirements and she assurred me that the Mt. View cabin would be perfect. It was! The cabin, although a bit dated, was very comfortable and had everything we could need. The fenced yard of over a half acre was fantastic for the dog. Secluded, close to great hiking and walking distance to town, the location was great. Martha's service was 1st rate and we look forward being back in the summer.


Christmas in Heaven!

We just got back from a 3 night stay at the Mountain View cabin in Idyllwild, and we have nothing but good things to report. We brought our dog, a black lab, who was in heaven running around the 1 acre lot, that was totally fenced it. It had just snowed the day before, so we were able to enjoy a white Christmas. The cabin itself was perfectly suited for us. It wasn't fancy per se - but had all the amenties we needed. A cozy fireplace, big open floorplan, fenced in back yard, big bedroom. Martha at Fern Valley Vacation Cabins was extremely friendly and accommodating. She moved one of the twin beds into the master bedroom which was perfect, so our 4 yr old son could sleep near us. When we arrived, the house was very clean, and already warm and cozy w/ the heat on.

We loved the cabin, and definately plan to book a trip back there next year. 5 stars for Mountian View and Fern Valley Vacation Cabins!


2011 at 7 arrows

My cousins and I had an amazing time. I had a little difficulty finding the cabin but once I was there all was good. The place was clean and stocked. I wish I would have known to bring a floor heater because the downstairs bedroom was freezing. But, my husband came up seciond night and brought one for us. Also, there was a power outage but that just added to our NYE memories. Good times!


Great place!

We make a trip out to idyllwild once a year, and we keep coming nack. This year was no different- loved everything! Martha was very kind, professional and accommodating!


A great place to stay

Quiet neighborhood, but walking distance to village center. Excellent house, modern, clean, well-maintained. Can't think of anything bad about the place.


A cozy wonderful cabin.

We really loved it. We spent most of the time in the upstairs area, but the downstairs is nice too. The whole place is more than large enough for two people. Very comfortable bed. Nice TV with DVD player. Some might find the kitchen a little small. It's a lovely walk into town, maybe about a mile.


Cozy

Nice and cozy.. a little hard to get to, especially in the middle of the night.. overall good, the bed a little small for 2, great tv channels and everything


Weekend getaway from la.

We had an excellent stay in a very cozy cabin. This was our first time in Idyllwild coming from Los angeles, and just two hours was like we travelled a world away. It was a relaxing weekend with excellent accommodations, close to town and hiking trails. On our way back to la we were already planning our next trip to Idyllwild. Great cabin and accommodations for the price.


Squirrel's Nest stay

There was a nice creek running behind the cabin. We spotted a deer the came down for a drink. The only issue we all had was that I requested a one level cabin and was given a call to let me know that the owners of the cabin I order was coming down and they had another cabin available with a stairway that circles. We all were already looking forward of getting away that I stated that I would take it. Now the issue my mother whom is 76 years young had trouble with the stairway because one it is really narrow and is very hard to manover. So if you request ths cabin make sure you are younger then 50. We did have a great time when we went to town and to Humble Park


Nice and wonderful cabin

It was a pleasure to stay at your place. My kids love it and they would like to come back again. Although, we did not encountered much snow which was not really good, however, we can't go against nature, but the stay was nice.
Thanks.


Beautiful.

We love this cabin, and this was the first time to rent through Martha Sanchez. Martha was thoughtful and met all of our needs promptly. We'll be back!


Thanks Jim Hagerty! Your little place was the perfect introduction

The personality of Jim Hagerty, cabin owner, is on full display in this cabin packed with original artworks and funky ceramic and furniture pieces bearing his artist's signature. The wood-burning stove was a real plus on a couple of cold December nights.

Comfortable beds, great location just off the main drag but also walking distance from a good 2-hour hiking trail.

We brought a little stereo for tunes which was a good move since the cabin has just an older TV with no VCR/DVD player and possibly no inputs.


Our stay at artist's Retreat was wonderful.

When we arrived the lights were on which provided a harbinger of the welcoming we received. We could not have asked for more. The place was clean, there were towels available, and wood for the fireplace. I would recommend artist's retreat and Martha Sanchez to anyone looking for a great weekend in Idyllwild.


Williams

Over all the service was great and the cabin was fine. We were a little further away from town than we would like. The ad said within walking distance. What it did not say is you had to cross the 243 to get to town.


California Best of all worlds

This cabin is walking distance to town, yet still feels private and tucked in the woods. Very comfortable--more of a modern house in the woods than a rustic cabin. Ideal for two couples. Very warm and intimate. The house was well stocked with amenities. It snowed quite a bit the weekend we stayed. The street was easy to get out of though and the owner was kind enough to shovel our driveway both mornings. I would like to return to this cabin again some day.


Cozy comfort

The Lighthouse is a cosy cabin with patios around the house and lovely views. We would definitely come back! Some small improvements could be made. A newer shower would be nice, but we had had fun using the tub and looking into the garden. The heater comes on quite loud and a water kettle would be a great addition to the kitchen.


Nice and cozy

Awesome get-away. It was 4 couples the only minor problem was having only one shower,a bathroom and a half, other than that it was great.


Relaxation at it's best!

Thank you Martha for an amazing holiday! We stayed the extra night because we were too relaxed to drive home and your great rates made that possible! We will be back, thanks again!
